According to Chatfield School Director Matt Young, the school reviewed the incident and has decided the unnamed officer "is a good fit for the position."
But Young says the K-8 school about 45 miles northwest of Detroit has revised its security procedures and added additional protocols. The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/XHvwyC ) they include installing "a lock box in a male staff restroom for our security officer to secure his weapon in while he uses that restroom."
The county prosecutor's office has said a criminal charge isn't necessary, since no one was harmed.
In response to the Newtown shooting, the NRA proposed schools hire armed guards and even arm teachers and staff. This alleged safety blunder has added fuel to arguments from opponents of such measures and is further stirring debate.
